2013 Operational Results First Second Third Fourth Quarter Quarter Quarter Quarter March June Sept. Dec. Year-End 31/13 30/13 30/13 31/13 Dec. 31/13 Gold Ounces Produced 46,170 48,003 48,903 49,526 192,602 Total Cash Costs per oz., $635 $655 $628 $771 $676 All-in Sustaining Costs per oz. $1,090 $1,189 $1,210 $1,232 $1,181
1. Prior to commissioning the underground mine at Young-Davidson, cash costs were calculated on ounces produced from the open pit only. All underground costs were capitalized, and any revenue related to underground ounces sold was credited against capital. Subsequent to the declaration of commercial production in the underground mine, cash costs are calculated on ounces produced from both the open pit and underground mines, and revenue related to the sale of underground ounces is recognized in the Company's Statement of Operations as revenue. 2. Cash costs, prior to inventory net realizable value adjustments. See the Non-GAAP Measures section on page 23 of the Management's Discussion and Analysis for the year ended December 31, 2013. 3. Includes pre-production gold ounces from the Young-Davidson underground mine prior to the declaration of commercial production on October 31, 2013.
- Commercial production of the underground mine was declared on October 31, 2013, following the commissioning of the shaft hoisting system, which will facilitate significant increases in underground productivities and ongoing unit operating cost improvements.
- During the fourth quarter, the Company averaged 2,590 tpd from the Young-Davidson underground mine (approx. 3,000 tpd in November and December), exceeding the year-end targeted level of 2,000 tpd. Underground productivity for the first quarter of 2014 is expected to remain in-line with overall fourth quarter levels (approx. 2,500 tpd) and increase steadily throughout the remainder of the year to reach a productivity target of 4,000 tpd by the end of the year.
- During the first two months of commercial production, underground unit mining costs were approximately $39 per tonne and are expected to average approximately $45 per tonne in Q1 2014, which reflects the inclusion of paste fill operations following the recent commissioning of paste backfill plant. Unit costs are expected to decrease steadily throughout the year, corresponding with planned quarter-over-quarter increases in underground productivity.
- The Company recently received the necessary permits to increase the daily processing limit of the Young-Davidson mill facility to 10,000 tonnes per day from the previous 8,000 tonnes per day. While the mill facility is expected to average between 7,000 and 7,500 tonnes per day in 2014, this future increase in throughput capacity will provide considerable flexibility as the mine continues ramping up to its target of 8,000 tonnes per day at the end of 2016. This productivity upgrade provides organic growth optionality that could permit early treatment of the longer term stockpile inventory, which could potentially enhance our future cash flow profile.
"The Company has reported solid results for 2013 that are in-line with market expectations and with the fourth quarter representing the sixth consecutive quarter of company-wide production growth. As we start 2014, both assets are performing at, or above, expected levels and this gives us confidence that the first quarter will represent the seventh consecutive quarter of company-wide production growth, a trend that we expect to continue throughout the year," stated Scott Perry, President and Chief Executive Officer. He continued, "At our cornerstone Young-Davidson mine we are well positioned for long-term success. We have declared underground commercial production, and completed construction activities such that all required infrastructure is currently in place. Our focus in 2014 will be to continue ramping-up underground productivity and advancing underground development at Young-Davidson to secure reliable, sustainable and profitable production growth going forward."
Managing Long-Term Liquidity
The Company is fortunate to be well positioned with a quality asset base, a growing production profile and a strong liquidity position that provides the Company with access to a number of shareholder friendly, non-dilutive debt financing options. The Company intends to issue longer dated term debt to enhance our balance sheet, repay existing debt, bolster our already strong liquidity position, and to secure additional flexibility to pursue future organic growth opportunities at our cornerstone Young-Davidson operation.

Total cash costs per gold ounce have been presented prior to inventory net realizable value adjustments. The Company has restated adjusted net earnings for 2012. (2) Certain comparative information has been restated as a result of the adoption of IFRIC 20, Stripping Costs in the Production Phase of a Surface Mine, which was applied prospectively to production stripping costs incurred on or after January 1, 2012. For further details, refer to the Critical Accounting Estimates, Policies and Changes section on page 30 in the Company's Management's Discussion & Analysis or note 3(a) to the Company's consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2013. (3) The Young-Davidson open pit mine declared commercial production on September 1, 2012, and is therefore excluded from cash costs prior to this date. The Young-Davidson underground mine declared commercial production on October 31, 2013, and is therefore excluded from cash costs prior to this date. Pre-production ounces produced are excluded from consolidated ounces produced as these ounces are credited against capitalized project costs when sold.

The Company uses the measures adjusted net earnings, cash costs per ounce, all-in sustaining costs per ounce, adjusted operating cash flow, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA in this press release, which do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS" or "GAAP"). They are, therefore, considered to be non-GAAP measures and may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. The non-GAAP measures cash costs per ounce and all-in sustaining costs per ounce are reconciled to the Company's financial statements beginning on page 23 of the Company's Management's Discussion and Analysis for the year ended December 31, 2013.
Adjusted net earnings is comprised of net earnings from both continuing and discontinued operations, adjusted for specific items. While the adjustments to net earnings in this measure include items that are recurring, adjusted net earnings is a useful measure as the unrealized gains / losses on foreign exchange, fair value adjustments on contingent consideration and derivatives, impairment charges, net realizable value adjustments, and other non-recurring items do not reflect the underlying operating performance of the Company's core mining business in the periods presented and are not necessarily indicative of future operating results.
Adjusted operating cash flow excludes the change in non-cash operating working capital, which includes changes in receivables, inventories, prepaid assets, and payables. Management uses adjusted operating cash flow as a measure internally to evaluate the underlying operating cash flow performance of the Company as a whole for the reporting periods presented, and to assist with the planning and forecasting of future operating cash flow.
EBITDA represents net loss from continuing operations before interest, taxes, amortization, and depreciation. Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA, adjusted for exploration expense and other non-cash items included in earnings. While the adjustments to net earnings in these measures include items that are recurring, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA a valuable indicator of the Company's ability to generate liquidity by producing operating cash flow to fund working capital needs, service debt obligations, and fund capital expenditures.
